Who is Deborah Kimmett?
Very few comedians – much fewer female comedians past 60 have a platform in Canadian media. Her last comedy album Downward Facing Broad aired on CBC Radio to great response and began to tour before the world was shut down. As COVID-19 raged on, the Downward Facing Broad comedy album became number 5 on iTunes! After 17 years on CBC’s radio show The Debaters, Kimmett has an impressive following with CBC audiences.
She is a regular on CBC’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival, LOL and is an accomplished author of four books, Reality is Overrated and That Which Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Funnier, and Out Running Crazy. Deb’s new book Window-shopping for God will be published in fall 2022. She was nominated twice for the National Magazine Award for Humour. As well, she has been shortlisted for the Governor-General Award for her play Miracle Mother in 1984. She has written 52 episodes of TV on Steve Smith’s Go Girl. Her lead in the movie, Keep Coming Back debuted at the Palm Springs Film Festival, and Whistler Film Festival garnered a best actress nomination for ACTRA. She has appeared on Canadian gems like Frankie Drake, Tall Boyz, and Gayle Pyle.
We will start the day warming up our right brain and getting the creative juices flowing. Weather permitting there will be some writing exercises down at the local park.
You will learn creative ways to access your memories. Some professional techniques to banish your inner critic. A set of tools that will keep you inspired long after the class is over.
Reviews Of Deb’s Workshops:
Dr. Carol Clapperton,
“I was all over the place with my ideas but Deb asked me questions that helped me focus my ideas.”
Suzzie Huston. (Student)
“I love how you approach the issues that stand in our way and inspire the creativity that is hidden in all of us. Not sure if you found this path or it found you, but you are changing lives! “
Lee- Anne MacAlear. (Motivational Speaker/ Innovator)
“Deb’s writing classes got me through the pandemic. A great comic, writer and teacher! Is there anything this girl can’t do?”
DorothyAnn Brown( author, Recycled Virgin)
“The classes I took were so inspiring, so fun, so depth-digging I feel as if you should also be charging therapy prices! And your depth of preparation was stunning and much appreciated. Still dancing through seven-minute segments and eternally grateful.”
Allison Ferguson. (Campus Recruitment Co-ordinator.)
“I’ve taken several writing workshops over the past few years, but Deb’s had provided me with some practical tools that I am using in my (almost) daily writing. What has stuck with me? The 7-minute exercise, the grace notes, mapping, the ‘suddenly’, the variety of mediums to illustrate the themes, to name a few.”
Janice Meighen, (Grief Counsellor and Weddings and Baptism Officiant.)
“Taking Deborah’s Writing in Your Pyjamas Sunday morning workshop opened me up and introduced me to the storyteller I had inside of me. She was very supportive, empowering, and honest! I highly recommend taking any one of her workshops and unleashing your own inner talents for the written word.”
Bella Grundy, (Talent Agent, Bella Agency)
“These classes have altered and exhilarated my life.”
